Clovelly

Set into a steep hillside, Clovelly is one of the most famous villages in the world. The single cobbled high street winds its way down the hillside through traditional whitewashed cottages festooned with fuchsias and geraniums.

Set into a steep hillside, Clovelly is one of the most famous villages in the world.

The single cobbled High Street winds its way down the hillside through traditional whitewashed cottages festooned with fuchsias and geraniums.

Traffic is banned from the High Street with visitors parking at the top of the hill adjacent to the Visitor Centre. The High Street drops 122m (400ft) in 0.8km (half a mile) through the 16th century cottages to a small harbour, and for a small fee, a Land Rover service ferries visitors up and down the steep hill via a back road.

Charles Kingsley lived here and visitors from all over the world marvel at how time has stood still in the village.
